How to Use the Lent Leads Us to Easter Countdown Set for Cycle A
A block is provided to represent each day of Lent, Triduum, and Easter. Learners should color in the days as they progress through the Lenten season. A pictorial representation or reminder highlights Ash Wednesday, each of the Sundays (based on the Gospel readings), and Triduum.
There are two versions of the Lent Leads Us to Easter Countdown Set for Cycle A included in this file.
